Pretty good chances, I'd say.

Why should Cerrone have to fight a retired fighter to get a title shot?

Did Nate say he was retired? I thought he was just holding out for more money.

Cerrone is fighting as many fights as the UFC will allow him to. He'd probably fight once a month if he could. What the hell does that have to do with Diaz? If he beats Miller then I say he should get a title eliminator.

Diaz who? Glad that Dana isn't falling for the "whine until I get a shot" tactic by those boys.

2 more fights after winning Miller is more than fair. Diaz retiring by defaults brings up Cerrone's stock.

It would buy him time to perhaps allow some other LW to dethrone Pettis. I don't think Cerrone can beat Pettis (and Benson); his ideal situation would be something like Meledenz grinds Pettis to a decision win so he can fight Melendez for title. Less chance of liver kicked.

I wouldn't include Nick Diaz. Nick has more leverage (more marketable) than Nate. DFW already sounds interested in Nick vs Anderson Silva.
